My 22 year old daughter & I just returned from a fantastic stay at this lovely hotel. From the moment our cab pulled up to the curb, the staff made us feel very special. I had mentioned this was a college graduation gift for my daughter & upon check in, Matt told her "congratulations". This was a nice surprise for her! All of the staff were very knowledgeable in answering all our questions & extremely helpful with subway questions. I always research extensively before making reservations & everything I read about the Hotel Elysee was positive & true. Our room was beautifully decorated & very comfortable. The daily breakfasts & afternoon snacks were very filling & relaxing. I especially enjoyed the live music in the Monkey Bar during the weekend & it was a great way to relax after a busy day of sightseeing. I've already told my husband I have to take him to the Hotel Elysee as he will love all their attention to detail!
